“On getting there we saw him up there, but we noticed one small paper beside him. We took it up and saw that he left a note where he wrote that he intentionally committed suicide because of too much debt he owed people”.

Daily Post reports that as at about 9.30 a.m. on Thursday, the body was still hanging on the ceiling but nobody was allowed to enter the building.

Some elders and landlords were seen having a meeting with some traditional herbalists who were demanding sacrificial materials to be used in appeasing some gods before the dangling body of the man could be brought down for proper burial.
